Current U-M undergraduate aerospace engineering students may apply to the Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Studies (SUGS) program. This program makes it possible for top U-M aerospace engineering students to pursue a five-year sequential BSE/MSE. SUGS students are able to double count up to nine credit hours and transfer up to six credit hours from their undergraduate program to their graduate program. Eligible students typically apply to the SUGS program in their senior year. Learn more about the AERO graduate program’s admissions deadlines and application process.
